The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents

Listen to a sample

What to expect


Every town on Discworld knows the stories about rats and pipers, and Maurice – a streetwise tomcat – leads a band of educated ratty friends (and a stupid kid) on a nice little earner. Piper plus rats equals lots and lots of money.

Until they run across someone playing a different tune.

Now he and his rats must learn a new concept: evil . . .

Critics Review

  • Ethically challenging, beautifully orchestrated, philosophically opposed to the usual plot fixes of fantasy

    The Guardian
  • Simply gripping story-telling

    The Times
  • Powerful, passionate, mordantly funny and, at one point, unbearably sad

    Daily Telegraph
  • An astonishing novel…I marvelled at the ferociousness of the humour, and the willingness to go into dark places

    Financial Times
  • Great yarn written in fairly simple text

    Liverpool Echo
